Despite pressing in the last quarter of an hour, the Nantes barrage never seemed able to slow down the progress of Lille, which takes the lead in Ligue 1 with two points ahead of Lyon. The Dogues put pressure on Paris, forced to win in Marseille not to be won. As for Nantes, more than 18th in Ligue 1 and more barrage than ever, it continues to stand still.
What you must remember
The logic has been respected to a large extent at Beaujoire. Lille, one of the three candidates for the title, continued its march forward, signing its 6th consecutive victory, thanks to a brace from young Jonathan David (9th, 83rd).
Between the vigorous northerner team and the suffering from Nantes, the trend did not take long to emerge. A recovery ball lost by Fabio, the ball reaches Bamba, left side, whose center is confused by Girotto and Louza. Quicker, David resumed victoriously with his right foot (0-1, 9th).
The rest of the first period saw the Canaries chasing the Mastiffs, more than 70% of possession, without ever being able to express themselves – no Nantes shooting in the first period. However, Lille, a little too relaxed and in no way challenged, did not make the most of their outrageous domination.
In the second half, Nantes are more combative and the debates are balanced, but without the slightest danger being brought on Maignan’s goal. In the last quarter, the Canaries finally put the Lille under some heat by Chirivella (76th) then Corchia (77th).
Lille still carry the coup de grace to Nantes in the last minutes. A cross from Weah on the right side, a one-two between Sanches and David and the latter, with his left foot, concludes beautifully in the right corner of Lafont (0-2, 83rd).
On the Nantes side, the calamitous series continues with a 14th game without a win, the Canaries not having won three points for three months and their success in Lorient (2-0) in early November. As for him, Raymond Domenec h has still not won in seven games …
The player: Jonathan David
Scorer, very active against Nantes and author of his first double with Lille, the Canadian international center forward, 21, has finally shown himself to his advantage in recent weeks. Bought 27 million euros at La Gantoise in the offseason (the biggest purchase ever made by the northern club), the top scorer in the Belgian league last season had not scored in his first thirteen games with Losc. With seven goals on the clock now, he is rising to meet the hopes placed in him.
The number: 3
FC Nantes have not won for three months and their success in Lorient 2-0 on November 8. That is 14 games without a win …
Sébastien Corchia (at the microphone of Canal +): “We had a really horrible first half. We tried to react in the second half and it was better but you have to do two halves like that to hope to win. We have to move, we need to win games. You have to hurry, take risks, go ahead and win the duels. You have to raise your head and take “3 points”. “
